Three Muses Challenge - Hat

I combined the hat challenge with practising for an upcoming still life challenge at another place.  I drew the face and hat, adding altered roses from my garden and a couple of Photoshop brushes.  The teapot was Googled as was the table.  The book, clock and floor tiles are by Irene Alexeeva, the blue flowers by Lorie Davison and the background paper by Rosey Posey. Sorry, Bev, I got a little bit carried away but it is REALLY all about the hat.

Take a Word Challenge - Fish

I have to admit that I enjoy those corny survival movies but, hey, fish stocks are dwindling in the ocean and fresh water is going out of fashion in some parts of the world.
Background, boots and steampunk dangly bits are from Marta at Deviant Scrap.  The fish is an Ozstuffe Originale and the lady was (ahem) found on line - at least half of her was.

Three Muses Challenge - Animals

I don't often talk about Uncle Paul's demise as it is too painful.  However, it is part of my family's history and it deserves to be told.

Three Muses Challenge - Masks

The lady with the soulful eyes is from E-vint.com which is a great source for thousands of vintage photos (I do not work for them!!).  Background and elements by Irene Alexeeva (sadly retired from designing) and the mask was Googled.
